Subject: Worth the watch
Not to be compared to the later version, nor the book, but in 1910 this had to be a real treat. It's a treat to watch it 104 years later, although for different reasons. Take the time to watch it.
Subject: Silent better than sound
The totally silent version is much clearer than the soundtrack version.
The faces on the trees were certainly eerie, but I think the scariest part was how the animal characters were only halfway anthropomorphised and the costumes they were wearing were also pretty creepy.
I realize this was done in 1910, and actually, I thoroughly enjoyed this version of the story.
